Program Description:



The Edinburgh Study Away program offers students a semester long academic and internship experience in the capital city of Scotland.  Students will take two elective courses offered by Edinburgh Napier University and a third course offered by the Furman faculty director of the program.  In addition to their coursework, students will complete a semester-long internship during their residency in Edinburgh.  Edinburgh Napier University offers a full range of courses that can satisfy any student’s interests.  Internships, judging by past years, will include the Scottish Parliament, the several Edinburgh regional councils, the media, the law, libraries, museums, health sciences and research sciences and businesses, as best fits each student’s area of interest and plan of study.  As one of the great cosmopolitan capitals of Europe, Edinburgh offers students a unique and fascinating local culture with historical sites of global importance.
